As I reflect on the events of 2012…I see it was one of my best years ever! I determined that it all had to do with my attitude and how I managed my life. It had everything to do with the things in my life to which I had control, my lifestyle choices. I focused on friendships, fitness, and fun activities. I heeded the call of the following passage from the Serenity Prayer:
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”
I realized that those things of which I had no control, it was up to me how I allowed them to affect me. I also live with the belief that there is always something good that comes out of the situation at hand, no matter what. With that said…life it great, and I continue to ‘Live My Life to the Fullest!!!’
I challenge you to review your life events of 2012, your attitude toward them, and determine how you will proceed in 2013. The year 2012 started out great for me, and continued to get better and deliver to me happiness and contentment beyond my dreams. The way the year is ending, I already see that 2013 will be even better! Following is my motto for 2013. It is not a resolution, but rather a lifestyle guide of how I choose to live my life:
“In 2013 I shall expand my routine to live more green, and strengthen my faith and belief in the unseen.”
My wish for you…Peace, Joy and Everlasting Love,
